Defense Against Rape Charges

Talk to an Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorney

Being charged with rape is especially harmful to those who are accused. All it takes to initiate an investigation is one person pointing the finger, whether or not their claim has merit.

In Georgia, rape convictions are felonies, which could carry the following punishments:

  • Imprisonment anywhere from 25 years to life
  • Possible death penalty
  • Fines and restitution to the victim

It is up to your defense attorney to disprove all of the claims and the evidence that have been brought up against you. There are dozens of ways to fight against wrongful rape accusations.
